Having first graced Futureboogie Recordings late last year with the brilliant Brisk EP, Phillip Lauer returns to the Bristol-based imprint for a second sortie into loved-up, retro-futurist house territory. While you'll find a fine example of his usual glassy-eyed, Balearic-minded deep house sound (the wavy riffs, melodious bass, cowbells and tuneful electronics of "Tyco"), it's the trippy and gently psychedelic moments elsewhere on the EP that most impress. "Clipper", a kind of saucer-eyed synth-pop-meets-house number smothered in cascading synthesizer melodies and Italo-disco, is very enjoyable, while darker, acid-flecked opener "Pile" - think moody Detroit techno at a house tempo with flashes of EBM-era dancefloor sleaze - is arguably even better.
